      Hey guys I am new to PokerstrategyS.com but been playing the online poker game for 6 yrs or so.

      About 2 yrs ago I took 25 buy ins to the $.25 45 mans on a prop bet and turned it into $113 over 1000 games in 2.5 months. If you are laughing right now I challenge you to try and beat it.

      I currently play 9 man sng's reg speed at the $1.50 / $3.50 level and play almost exclusively staked and I'm profitable!

      I am a 50 yr old grandpa in SW Ont and I am a full time financial planner so this staking fits right in for me as I love making people money!

      I am currently running a challenge to take 25 buy ins for the Micro Millions at each level and win 11 tickets to each satty. I will unreg 10 of them and take the T$'s and take the 11th ticket and play the satty tourney. This also includes using my fpp's starting at 20 fpp's.

      I do not grind volume like Collin Moshman does as poker is not my full time job but I hope to grind these stakes up, build a bankroll and do this full time.

      Gidee Up!

      Welcome to our blogging section indeed!

      Wow, you're going to play satellites into all the possible levels of buyins?

      Will you be playing all 100 events, as well, or just one from each buyin level?

      This seems like it can become an awesome project, will be following your progress!

      Regards,
      Richard

      Okay so far I have played 45 games at $0.15 satty to event MM002 and cashed 7 tickets and 10 x 2nd for 38 itm% and profit of $2.85 or 75% roi.

      I have also played 9 x $0.35 satty to event MM006 and received 2 tickets for a 22 itm% and $1.25 profit or 46% roi.

      Just to clarify I will try and do this in all the satty's 9 man tables from $0.15 to $3.35 buy ins level which will give me tickets to the following events.

      MM002
      MM006
      MM007
      MM008
      MM025
      MM045
      MM098

      Hi C0WB0Y,

      Will you be running this alongside your normal blog, or would you prefer it if we merged the two together into one single blog?

      Regards,

      Okay so far we have played 65 x $0.15 MM002 sattys and have cashed 8 tickets and a profit of $1.74 and itm 33.3%. I have 3 more tickets to win then I will move up to the $0.35 games.

      My fpp series is going well too as I have played 20 games and cashed 6 tickets for $6 and won an additional 150 fpp's so overall it has cost me 250 fpp's for $6. Normally if I were bronze and just cashed out the fpp's I would firstly need 2500 to get $25 bonus or if silver 4500 to get $50. At this rate I will cash $60 after 2500 points spent. Very good value IMO

      Okay a great session this morning in the fpp category. 7 games played in 20 fpp MM002 and I got 4 more tickets and 100 fpp's. So I have played 27 of these at a cost of 540 fpp's and won 10 tickets and 250 fpp's. Net cost is 290 fpp's to win $10 and after my 11th ticket I will play the satty on July 12th. One time right!

      Well it got you here right! LOL hey if you like I can ask to have them change the title!

      Okay so 33 20 fpp games played and i have won 13 tickets and 300 fpp's for a net cost of 360 fpp's to win $13.
      I have now hit my target of 11 tickets and will play the MM002 event July 12th. I will continue to use my fpp's to get even more tickets/cash.

      The $0.15 games are turning a profit too but much harder to cash. I have played 75 games and cashed 9 tickets and 2nd 18 times for $2.17 profit. So overall I have between the 20 fpp and $0.15 MM002 sattys I have 20 tickets. In the $0.35 games I have 2 tickets

      Now they have added event MM027 for the same 20 fpp satty so I will attempt to win 11 tickets for it as well and unreg for 10 of them and play the event with the 11th securing at least $10 and freerolling the rest!

      2 tickets and 250 fpp's this morning.

      Okay so picked up another 5 tickets to MM002 and MM027 combined for 23 total. I still have 33 buy ins left too. These are such great value.

      4 more tickets last night and 50 fpp's in 9 games so the value in these for the use of the fpp's is uber awesome.
      Consider that at bronze if I am trading for cash, I would have to spend 2500 fpp's to get $25 cash. I have played upwards of 75 games starting with 1400 fpp's and have 600 fpp's left and $27 in my pocket.
      If i was silver star I would need 4500 fpp's to cash $50 so I think I am on much better cash pace for the fpp's. GREAT VALUE!

      I wish MMII would last forever!
